Though the hockey team couldn’t win at the Tokyo Olympics, families of Udita Duhan and Sharmila Godara are satisfied with their performances. They said their daughters had made them proud.

“We are glad that the team grabbed the fourth position for the first time in the Olympics. This is no mean feat. All girls played well and gave the country a reason to cheer,” said Udita’s younger sister Monty Duhan. She said they talked to Udita over the phone last evening and she told them they would give their best in the match”

“It gives us immense happiness to know that people across India are appreciating the girls on the social media,” she added.

Meanwhile, Sharmila’s father Suresh Godara, a farmer, said they had never imagined that their daughter would not only represent India in the Olympics but also become a part of the team that would create history.

“We are happy with her performance but it would have been a double delight had

the team won the bronze. Sharmila has made us proud by representing India in

the Olympics. We are now eagerly awaiting her arrival,” he added. — TNS
